I have create a VF page for (PDF) quote generation however i'm struggling keeping the currency symbol and amount together.

enter image description here

Looking at my code ...

{!$Label.Quote_PDF_AgreesOnPlanned_Act}
    <b>
    {!
      IF(Opportunity.CurrencyIsoCode = "USD","$ ", 
      IF(Opportunity.CurrencyIsoCode = "EUR","€ ", 
      IF(Opportunity.CurrencyIsoCode = "JPY","¥ ", 
      IF(Opportunity.CurrencyIsoCode = "GBP","£ ", 
      IF(Opportunity.CurrencyIsoCode = 'DKK','DK', 
      IF(Opportunity.CurrencyIsoCode = 'CHF','Sf',              
         Opportunity.CurrencyIsoCode)
    )))))
    }
    </b>
    <b> 
    <!-- Hide when subscription = true -->
    <apex:outputText escape="false" value="{0, number, ###,###,###,##0.00}" rendered="{!!showSubscriptionsTable}">
       <apex:param value="{!Opportunity.Amount}" ></apex:param>
    </apex:outputText>
    </b>

Change this code:

    </b>
    <b> 

To this code:

    </b>&nbsp;<b> 

You need to make sure that there's no white space, or HTML will be allowed to break there. In fact, you could really just take out that bit of code:

{!$Label.Quote_PDF_AgreesOnPlanned_Act}
    <b>
    {!
      IF(Opportunity.CurrencyIsoCode = "USD","$ ", 
      IF(Opportunity.CurrencyIsoCode = "EUR","€ ", 
      IF(Opportunity.CurrencyIsoCode = "JPY","¥ ", 
      IF(Opportunity.CurrencyIsoCode = "GBP","£ ", 
      IF(Opportunity.CurrencyIsoCode = 'DKK','DK', 
      IF(Opportunity.CurrencyIsoCode = 'CHF','Sf',

         Opportunity.CurrencyIsoCode)
    )))))
    }<!-- Hide when subscription = true 
    --><apex:outputText escape="false" value="{0, number, ###,###,###,##0.00}" rendered="{!!showSubscriptionsTable}">
       <apex:param value="{!Opportunity.Amount}" ></apex:param>
    </apex:outputText>
    </b>

It's all about white-space management.

  • It also depends somewhat on the customer's requirements for how "pretty" they want it to look. Not everyone will find the lack of the non-breaking space appealing, but I agree he could remove all of the If statements. +1

  • Stipped the code back to this .. and no luck ... i'm not even sure if this would be duable using Case control. It's a pitty sfdc lack support of string method with parameters from VF. Then I could solve it with an simple method .. (function). Commented Oct 24, 2018 at 20:52

You need to slightly modify your code to add a non breaking space code like below to all of your equivalent lines:

IF(Opportunity.CurrencyIsoCode = "USD","$&nbsp;", 

Doing that should cause the currency symbol to stay with the value and not allow the break to occur.

    other enhancements would include using a CASE formula and moving the currency symbol logic into a reusable VF custom component

  • That did not help I'm afraid ... now the line says ..Hereby Mr Stein agrees on the scope and planned activities for the amount of €&nsp; 169,100.00 (based on actual costs excl. VAT). Commented Oct 24, 2018 at 20:50
  • I made a typo. That should be &nbsp;. My apologies. Will fix it in my answer too.

Seems devil was in the details. "white-space management" triggered me to look closer .... removing the blanks here value="{0, number, ###,###,###,##0.00}" worked magic ...

  • What blanks are you referring to? This looks the same as the code you posted.
